states. conservatives want what ann romney is suggesting. we should not mistake a change in temperament or a change in persona to be a change in principles. i will say this. one thing i can tell you about mn mitt romney and that's why we keep on the right we keep the gun loaded is we know this about mitt romney. a change in principle is always possible. i will agree with that. >> that's why jon huntsman called him a perfectly lubricated weather vane. ultimately the conservatives will not like that if he gets elected. >> expose that. obama had a chance to expose that on a national stage and he didn't take advantage of that. >> not only did he not make distinctions on reproductive rights, he said there isn't a big difference on me and my opponent on social security. that was an unforced error. >> we have to end this before steve he's head blows off. i'm afraid he's at a fever pitch here. michael, thank you. you've been so patient. thank you erin and keith. >>> coming up, a tense moment in a local interview with congressman paul ryan. >> those are yours, not mine. >> thank you very much, s
closed the gap in key swing states in romney's favor. adding to the fodder, the headline of the article, "did obama just throw the entire election away?" sullivan writes, quote, i'm trying to see a silver lynning but whether a president sem-immoates on live tv and a record number of people watch, it's hard to see how they recover. questions about the future of the obama candidacy coming as new reports emerge on an all-out rebellion inside the romney campaign led by ann romney and their son, tagg. politico says the romney family staged an intervention and pushed the recent shift to the center. politico writing the family rebellion long little, despite mitt romney's initial reluctance to change reached a climax in september. joining me now to make sense of all the new polls out there, mark murray. so mark, at 1:05 eastern time we got a new gallup tracking out. before we get into that, it seems one poll today that dominated the conversation is the pugh poll, but within the last hour there was a new reuters poll that came as well. >> we reached a very volatile part of the presidential conte
and their spouses are making a strong push in the state. mitt romney and his wife ann both made multiple campaign stops there yesterday. the first lady's event opens to on the public 2:45 this afternoon. >> president obama will try to appeal to young voters again today. he'll visit ohio state university in columbus. he's been to more than 30 college campuses this year alone. this will be his fourth visit to a campus in ohio in recent weeks. the president flies to the battleground state from california where a series of fund-raisers helped generate millions of dollars for his campaign. >>> republicans are focusing on another battleground state, north carolina. senator john mccain and house speaker john boehner are some of the gop leaders who will campaign for mitt romney in the tar heel state. the republican presidential nominee will visit north carolina later in the week. he campaigned in virginia yesterday. romney criticized president obama's foreign policy. he also vowed to be tougher on iran and help rebel forces in syria. foreign policy will be the focus of the next presidential debate which
. here's something encouraging for governor romney. because this is a state with a significant african-american population, president obama has a strong base here. governor romney has to do well among white voters. look at this among white men, a huge lead 30 points among white men 64 to 34, he has to keep president obama probably around 37%. overall among the white vote. so encouraging for the governor among man. but white women in the state of ohio, wolf, 52% to 46%. a narrow lead for the president. some people might say that's not such a big deal. when the president beat john mccain in 2008, president obama received 47% of the white female vote. so he is now winning that vote. that is the key area that governor romney must improve in his advertising, campaigning, in the final two debates plus the vice presidential debate. wolf, that's one of the reasons we're here. when you talk to white women especially in the suburbs, one thing that resonates with them they don't like, that 47% remark. a lot of them have struggled the last few years, they found what governor romney said offensive.
people out there. good they're terrified of the united states. >> bob: about romney? >> greg: spooked about anybody willing to use force rather than -- let's go back. focus on iran. remember in 2009 how president obama reacted to iran. a muted response. then he said he was troubled. his rough stance was a frown. that is what romney is talking about. >> dana: the other thing, his message to the debate is return america to position of economic strength and growth. if you talk foreign policy, the economic policy matters because you want a strong growing america to become the lender not be the borrower. we're not on that path. romney not saying he could get it done and get us on a better path to be a stronger world player in the future. >> bob: what he said about iran, i would make the sanctions tougher. move the mediterranean fleet up near iran and the pacific fleet near iran, both have been done. >> dana: i thought you said he didn't give specifics. >> bob: he didn't. >> dana: those sound specific. >> bob: he said i'd move the fleets but they're already there. >> dana: we could apply mo
are keenly aware. romney began in iowa, one of the states that could prove crucial to his hopes for a path to 270 electoral votes. and he was introduced by his son, josh, who had an interesting take on romney's debate preparation. >> we'd say the same lie over and over and my dad learned then not to believe it. so while we didn't go to any of the formal debate preparation, we did the real hard stuff. as a father, he learned how to debate an obstinate child. >> kicking it off by suggesting the president is an obstinate child. that's great, mr. romney. what do you have for sale? >> i am going to put a cap on regulation and any new major regulation will have to be approved by congress. i'm not letting the politicians off the hook. >> absolutely, he's not letting politicians off the hook, just wall street, k street, polluters, abusers, everyone else. the president spent last night rallies supporters at a san francisco fund-raiser telling them he intends to win but only if his backers are obsessive for the next four weeks and admitting that he's got some ground to make up after the debacle in d
. president obama holes a campaign rally today at ohio state university. mitt romney holds rallies in both ohio and iowa. and i want to take another look at those two polls that everyone is talking about this morning. they seem to paint different pictures of this race. the pew research center gives mitt romney a four-point lead over president obama. 49% to 45%. that survey did include more likely voters who identify themselves as republicans. however, the latest gallup tracking poll has president obama leading mitt romney 50% to 45%. this poll does include voters who were surveyed before the presidential debate which most voters say romney won though interestingly enough, it showed movement toward obama yesterday. all right. hard to keep track of. there's a lot going on here. cnn political reporter peter hamby joins us live from washington. please, peter, make sense of this for us. >> okay. these are the first two real credible polls we've seen since the debate. the bottom line here is there's movement in both toward mitt romney. you're right. the gallup poll had about three days of sampli
's a tough argument for romney to make in certain swing states. >> mitt romney trying to maybe muddle the issue, talking about the 8% figure. you can stay with cnn for the vice presidential debate on thursday night. our coverage begins at 7:00 eastern. you can also go to cnn.com. >>> it's 16 minutes past the hour. let's get you up to date with our top stories. >>> jerry sandusky faces life behind bars when he's sentenced later this morning. he is expected to speak at his hearing this morning before finding out his fate. the convicted child predator released an audio tape from prison insisting he's innocent, while blaming his downfall on one of his victims and a quote, well orchestrated conspiracy." >>> joran van der sloot may become a father. he was arrested but never charged in the disappearance of american teen natalee holloway in aruba in 2005. he's in prison in peru serving a 28-year sentence for murder of another woman. a dutch newspaper reports he apparently got a woman pregnant during an unsupervised visit. >> take a look at this. double down the line and a play at the plate bu
